've also said, senator cruz, that you are prepared to use the debt ceiling vote as a bargaining tool. but some look at that and they say, you could be risking the downgrading of u.s. government debt, u.s. government bonds again. >> you fast forward to the debt ceiling. i think that's the mirror image of the fiscal cliff. because the default, if nothing happens, is that the debt ceiling is not raised. what that means it doesn't mean, as some who would demagogue this issue suggest, i doesn't mean a default on our debt. whatnot raising the debt ceiling would mean is a partial government shutdown. roughly 40 cents of every dollar the federal government spends is borrowed. if you don't raise the debt ceiling, that 40 cents is temporarily stopped. now we did that in 1995. we didn't default on our debt. >> woodruff: right. the result was balanced budgets and some of the greatest fiscal responsibility was seen we've seen in modern times from congress because fiscal conservatives stood together and saiwe need to be responsible. >> woodruff: let me ask you about a couple of other issues. that

with a conversation about politics and economics and debt ceilings and fiscal cliffs and sequestration with david leonhardt of the "new york times" and austan goolsbee, former chairman of the president's council of economic advisors. >> there's much less of a sense in obama that he can get the grand bargain. although he's still trying. he and boehner both are. i think he's much more cynical about what republicans will agree to and i think he's come to think that many of them won't do anything with him. >> rose: national security, politics, and the economy when we continue. captioning sponsored by rose communications from our studios in new york city, this is charlie rose. poop announced his picks for two of the most important national security positions earlier today. for secretary of defense he nominated former republican senator chuck hagel. he chose counterterrorism advisor john brennan to head the c.i.a.. >> chuck hagel is the leader that our troops deserve. he is an american patriot, he enlisted in the army and volunteered for vietnam. as the young private and then sergeant he served with ho

'm going to tell you why i think a debt ceiling and government shutdown, bad idea. i'm going to show you a better way. the "kudlow report" begins right now. . >>> first up, amid allegations of anti-semitism and antiisrael sentiments, president obama nonetheless nominated former republican senator chuck hagel for the position of secretary of defense. that today, also reportedly soft on iranian sanctions. so is there any truth to these charges? here to discuss eliot abrams, a senior fellow at the council on foreign relations. eliot, happy new year and as always, welcome back. are these charges -- is there merit to these charges? first of all, anti-semitism. >> look, i can't read his mind. i can only go by the public record. the public record suggests he's got a problem with jews, frankly. there's reports from the members of the tiny nebraska jewish community that they never had a politician in nebraska who was so indifferent, their word, indifferent to the community. who took no interest, who was completely nonresponsive to any requests they made. there's a beginning. then you have these q
to have to deal with for secretary of defense. we have the budget, we have the debt ceiling looming. we have the legislation that's basically funding the government in the be absence of a budget. we have all of these things that are coming up. the government shutdown clock is already running and all of this stuff is going on. jamming firearms legislation, anything that addresses gun control, which remains restrictions on guns remain politically unpopular, people are-- feel good about restricting access for the mentally ill, america remains mostly, and it remains daunting. >> megyn: initially we were told they were looking at everything. am some people are looking at things other than gun control. secretary sebelius of the health and human services department will have meetings with mental health and disability advocates, or at least a meeting. the education secretary arne duncan is going to meet with parent and teacher groups, but the vice-president is devoting his time to the gun issue and i guess secondarily to the video game and movie issue. now, i mean, is this going to be a gun --
shutdown and debt ceiling and all of that, so why bother? >> first of all about the debt ceiling this is really important. if we have reached the debt ceiling what that means, bill, is we can't borrow any more money. none the less the tax receipts under the tax laws we now have would continue to it bring in about 60% of the money needed to fund the government. which means that you -- that about 40% of the money would not be there you would have to find a way to shut down 40% of the government so you wouldn't have a way to finance it. that leaves plenty of money by the way, 60% to cover any payments on the national debt. they are only 6 or 7% of spending. when you talk about defaulting on our debt, it's a total red herring. >> bill: but, what happens is that moodies and other financial institutions that grade america's investment capability and whether people should invest here will downgrade like we saw last year. so, i don't understand why president obama, if he knows what you just said and what i know that the republicans are never going to go for another tax increase. why both

, busting through the debt ceiling would be time. it is time to admit that america is a bit of a ludicrous banana republic. this is really bad options of managing our affairs. that is a grim conclusion, by the way, that means bond prices will go up, not as much as in default. but it is a grim conclusion that fits the evidence. of course, there is another option, republicans could just do what the congress of the united states is supposed to do. they could pay the bills it has racked up. and if it wants to pay fewer bills in the future and spend less money it can cut spending or raise taxes, which it writes the next budget. you know, the time you're supposed to do that. you know the way we have been doing it of the nation's history before john boehner and the republicans took over the house, during the entire rest of the nation's history when we never came close to purposely faulting on our deletes when we weren't a ludicrous banana republic? the last word for tonight. the ed show is up next. >> good evening and welcome to new york. the republicans are whining about the president's choice f

connell. mcconnell wouldn't take the debt ceiling off the table, but he wouldn't commit to doing it. and when you have boehner saying it's a better point of leverage with sequester, he's politically wrong about that. sequester is terrible, terrible program cuts. but it's a lot less horrible than the debt ceiling. so any time you're thinking that you have to bargain over that, you are bargain around that and the president can stand firmer on that than he could, i think, on the debt ceiling crisis. so i think his strategy of saying i'm not going to negotiate with you on that is paying off. >> now, jared, it was interesting to me when newt gingrich who did close government in the '90s, newt gingrich predicted that the republicans were in on this. watch this. >> everybody's now talking here comes the debt ceiling. i think that's frankly a dead loser. because in the end you know it's going to happen. the whole financial system is going to say this will be a gigantic problem. you can't be responsible. and they'll cave. >> when you have newt gingrich saying they'll cave. and newt gingrich did this,
does. >> the fundamentals certainly could drive things, even though we've got that debt ceiling, the washington dysfunction. right now we're all about earnings. that certainly will be the near term catalyst. let's get this new information though. how about this for a prediction? a market crash coming in the third quarter of this year, and the u.s. is head for bankruptcy? >> that's how harry dent -- i was so taken aback. >> that's how harry dent of h.s. dent investment manager says happy new year and the author of "the great crash ahead, strategies for a world turned upside down." harry, come on, man. i mean, you've seen those guys on espn say come on, man. that seems a little bit over the top, doesn't it? >> how many crashes have we seen in the last ten years or so? 2000, 2002, bubble, crash. 2007, bubble, crash. we're getting a bubble and crash about every four or five years, so this is what we have when you go over a demographic cliff. remember japan? think back to japan. japan went over the demographic cliff, peak and baby boom spending, peak real estate boo. they had a bust.

not reality? >> no, i actually think they have a great deal of leverage. it's not just the debt ceiling but the sequester and the continuing resolution that funds all of the government, all of which hit within basically 60 to 90 days. i think that does give that and plus, i think the public knows there needs to be serious spending cuts and entitlement reform. we're on much firmer footing than before and much more united as a party. it's up to the president to make pretty serious concessions. >> is the boehner rule going to be in place here, the boehner rule being every dollar raising the debt ceiling will require one dollar of spending cuts over the next ten years. do you think john boehner can deliver on that to his party? >> i think he absolutely can deliver. he delivered on it last time. i think he'll be able to do it again. this is actually a fight with republicans not only anxious for but needs to happen. the president has presided over four $1 trillion deficits in a row. never presented a budget that any member of his own party was willing to vote for. the democratic senate hasn't
